Q
Is there an alternative to simply shutting off your firewall, so that people can join the server (I use zone alarm), I just don't want to leave myself open for attack.

And is there anywhere I can find a list of server commands, I want to set the frag limit to 150 and it won't let me do it in-game.

TY :D

You need to make it so that AvP2 can act as a server in ZA. In the newest version, there's a special Game Mode that helps you with this.

Doesn't solve the problem, the firewall will not let anonymous connections to a server on my PC, hence it won't appear in server list or even let people connect while its running. So I need a way around it, without disabling it.

Yeah, It's in that version too. You right click on the icon in your taskbar and click Game Mode. If you've tried running the game as a server, the game should be listed in the ZA Program list which you can change. You get a popup question telling you if you want to run it as a server or not.

Ah I see, can't believe I didn'tr try right clicking in the first place.

MEH!,

It's still not working for me, the server refuses to show up in server list



And the server version says 1,0,0,0 if that's the problem (how to update to 1.0.9.6)?

Updating it wouldn't help your problem but it wouldn't hurt. I don't know. I'm out of ideas. It should work with those settings. If you had ZoneAlarm Pro, you could set up an expert rule to allow it to access a specific port. It works okay without ZA running, then?

I have ZA pro :D

And I'm just assuming it works without firewall as I've had this problem with hosting servers for a few games, never tried to get a solution before though.

You don't have a hardware firewall such as a router, do you?

Ah, Yes I do have a router unfortunately, it belongs to my brother as it sends wireless internet to his latop.  I don't have a login to change settings for it, but I do have admin on comp if that comes in handy.

Then, that's your problem.

You need to sort your router out to allow it to accept connections from whatever port you're using in your games.

My router contains profiles for lots of games and apps in the settings. It's pretty easy to change.
